Tax Enough didn't show enough at Salisbury to suggest he'll be getting off the mark here and faces a number of nicely-bred youngsters. Godolphin's pair, Diplomatic Force and Istimraar, may do better as three-year-olds and Noble Metal also looks as though he'll need a stamina test to show his best. Banaadeer is closely related to the useful Moonis and Desert Sky but Mark Johnston's STARS OVER THE SEA, a half-brother to a couple of smart milers, is the choice on pedigree and can make a winning debut.
